'"Rasheed Araeen: Before and After Minimalism" presents sculptures, paintings and drawings created during the more-than 50-year career of this influential Pakistani-born British artist.
The exhibition traces his evolution as a painter in Karachi to his shift towards Minimalism in London and ultimately to his international recognition and achievements as a post-Minimalist sculptor.
Trained as a civil engineer, Araeen is best known for his formal, geometric sculptures often created from simple, sometimes industrial materials. Eschewing traditional sculptural hierarchies and compositional concerns, Araeen’s works are informed by his social and political convictions.' - from organiser's website.
